SIMPMOBPHONE indicates whether the household has a "simple mobile phone." Researchers may wish to combine responses to this variable with responses to the related variable MOBPHONE, which refers to household ownership of any mobile phone.

The information in SIMPMOBPHONE is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.


SIMPMOBPHONE has no comparability problems.
